Definitely this.

 

Sorry, I could hardly give a [censored] about how much prime time our sponsors get or don't.  If they get the ultimate prime time of Grand Final day and all the subsequent promotional opportunities that come from a premiership, they should be pretty happy with that. 

Our supporters that have rocked up week in, week out for years deserve to be looked after more than a bunch of corporates that have been on the ride for just the last few and will jump off whenever it suits them.

Being looked after is making a financial benefit as much as possible with the fixture. If is assumed that to allow  a Club to be more viable playing marquee snd prime times is a natural progression once a Club is successful. 

Bring on the big prime time slots and make us Big like in the 50:60'd again. 

We we're 5th biggest in AFL crowds in 2022  let's break into the top 4 of Coll Carlton Ess and Richmond on 2023.

With Optus Stadium likely unavailable for round 1, I wonder if that opens the door for a Luke Jackson grudge match at the G for round 1??

Be more exciting than a trip to Blundstone Arena.

I have one wish, that the AFL don't dribble out the fixture timeslots like last year. I tried to get to Alice for the game, by the time I actually knew what day it was being played on all the accommodation had gone and the airfares were 5 times the price.

What else but 22 games at the MCG on Saturday afternoons.

I know we have not played well at the G recently but, after a few games, we should be able to find our mojo and start to dominate at home.

Anything else is detrimental to our chances.

We don't need to play the Catty Putts at Geelong - we've done our apprenticeship in 'entertaining umpiring'. We do need to be granted the privilege of playing more games at our home ground in front of our own supporters (the ground where so many of our supporters attend when we are on that fixture). This has a double-whammy effect when we play as the away side to other co-tenants of our inherent home ground, and I like that outcome.

Melbourne V Ducking Dogs Rd1 MCG Sat 7:25pm.

Looks like we gonna be playing them twice a year like we did with the Saints 2015-2019.

Not 100% but pretty sure it will be the case.

Your just guessing FTB might be correct you have about a 33.3% chance as 6 out of 18 Clubs we play twice.

Care to predict some other morsels for us during 2023?

So your hoping he AFL take fans requirments into account then?

Their petty-mindedness, as evidenced by relasing Round 1 info around time of Aus V Argentina , doesn't fill me with confidence as to head office's mindset.

Good luck though. I'll be checking too.

I heard the AFL are releasing the exact times and dates of rounds 16-23 (not 24) in one hit, around the mid season point.

Take your condescension away thanks.

Playing a team in round 1 who we just played in a GF and with the AFL trying to build rivalries  leads to a fair chance that we will play them twice.

Take it to the bank that we will have the cats in Geelong and west coast in Perth as your morsels clever man.

Thanks BBP booked my flights today, would like to book accommodation at a couple of places around Alice, makes it difficult when you don't know the exact date of the game

I think you can make an educated guess for when the game is likely to be. Round 16 when we play the Giants in Alice Springs will be From Friday 30/6 until Sunday 2/7.

There about a 0.01% chance we will be playing the game on the Friday night. We usually play the games in AS during the day so it will either be Saturday 1/7 or Sunday 2/7.

The game against Port last year was on Sunday at 2:50pm.

2020 against the Saints was on a Saturday night in late August.

2019 vs WCE was on a Sunday afternoon in mid July

2018 vs Adel was also on a Sunday afternoon in late May

Thanks Andy, I also did the history thing and have booked from Weds to Mon, I will keep an ear to the ground for any official club events too. I also sent the AFL an email (doesn't hurt) to ask when they might release the times. I did have a fantasy of spending a night or two at the Ross River resort, which is why I am keen to know the dates. thanks for the response. (I love this site)

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    POSTGAME: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.

    GAMEDAY: Rd 09 vs Carlton

    It's Game Day and the Demons are once again headlining another blockbuster at the MCG to kick off the round of footy. The Dees take on the Blues and have the opportunity to win their third game on the trot to solidify a spot in the Top 4 in addition to handing the Blues their third consecutive defeat to bundle them out of the Top 8.
